The Monastery aims to be Open Every Day between 11am- 4pm (except Saturdays) with free entry & free parking. Visitors are most welcome to call in between 11 and 4pm and visit the Heritage Corner but we cannot guarantee that the Great Nave will always be available.

Special Heritage & Visitor Open Days are held all year round on every Sunday, Monday and Tuesday when the Great Nave, Café & Shop are usually open between 11 and 4pm. Tours and talks can also be pre-booked on these open days. Please note, there will be no access to the Nave on Sunday 23rd June due to the Music Action International Concert (our Sunday Taste of The Monastery Tour in June will take place on Sunday June 30th). The Friary and Victorian Pantry will remain open as usual on these days.

A regular programme of community, health, well-being and family activities is also available for everyone to enjoy. Our affordable Community Rooms can be pre-booked for use 7 days of the week between 9am and 5.30pm.

Musicians from Stone Flowers will be accompanied by Manchester Camerata for a unique and unmissable performance. The performance is part of Music Action International’s Conflict & Compassion programme which explores the conflict of World War I from untold and overlooked perspectives outside of Europe.

Our themes have been interwoven into a compelling immersive performance for Refugee Week, to inspire audiences for a better, more peaceful future for us all. The performance will include newly written music interwoven with music by World War I composers (Elgar, Butterworth, Bax) and incredible live visuals. We’ll be transforming this iconic venue into an unmissable sensory experience.

Tickets are £12 full price and £10 for concessions. Refugees and asylum seekers, and those with a Monastery Community Card (M18 and M12 postcodes) are eligible for free tickets. Please click here for more information or for ticket bookings.
